Artwork: 9/10 I'd give this game a perfect score for art, but some of the cards do come out looking a little dark. Though most of the art is incredibly detailed, there are a several different styles of art mixed together which mostly complement each other without looking too disparate.

Rules Clarity: 7/10 The rules definitely need some editing and the examples could be better structured. The game itself isn't too complicated, but there are some small points which I'd like to see clarified. If your group is willing to make a few rulings using common sense and the spirit of the game, it should play out just fine.

Enjoyment: 8/10 I had a great time playing this game as did the rest of my group. Some of my friends found the luck element to be too strong though, and a bad starting deal can drastically alter the game for everyone. Luck does play a significant factor in here, but there's definitely strategy too. The game definitely works better with more players though. A 3 player game was both fast and enjoyable, but a 5 player game still kept a good pace and remained very fun.

Replay value: 7/10 The mix of missions/characters/final missions does give the game a fair amount of replay value, but certain strategies do become more common with time. An expansion would certainly help the game, but as is I think it'll get broken out on occasion, especially with different groups.

For a $20 game I really don't think any gaming group can go wrong with it. If you're not a fan of the fantasy genre you might shy away from it, but if you're a fan of high fantasy, anime, or modern console RPGs you'll find plenty to enjoy.
